  • religious site

Monnot, Beirut district

The Cathedral of Saints Gregory and Elias is located in the south of downtown Beirut, near the residential zone of Saifi Village. During its construction in 1860, this church was the first to be dedicated to Armenian Catholics in Lebanon. It was destroyed in 1901 in order to expand so that it can accommodate a large number of devotees. It was destroyed once again in 1950 to build the Cathedral of St. Elias and St. Gregory which was during the time of the Cardinal Agajajian.
